Alexandria Minerals Announces TSX Venture Approval of Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2016) - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) ("Alexandria" or the "Company") announces that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for the Company's intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the "Issuer Bid"). Under the terms of the Issuer Bid, the Company may acquire or repurchase for cancellation up to 13,404,967 issued common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") representing approximately 5% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares and approximately 5.05% of the Company's estimated Public Float.

Eric Owens, the Company's President and CEO, stated, "We believe that Alexandria's shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect their value in relation to our asset position and future business prospects. Given our successes and growth rate of gold resources over the past few years, Alexandria represents an attractive investment."

At the option of the Company, the purchase for cancellation of its shares commence on February 11, 2016, and end on February 10, 2017, or such earlier time as the Issuer Bid is completed or terminated at the option of the Company. Such purchases will be made by Integral Wealth Securities Limited on behalf of Alexandria in open market transactions on the TSX-V or other recognized marketplaces at the prevailing market price.
